Nigeria looking to recruit Everton and Liverpool stars

Continuing momentum

Nigeria officials are looking to continue their recruitment drive after securing the allegiance of Chelsea star Tammy Abraham.

That will come in the form of two stars on Merseyside, Ademola Lookman and Dominic Solanke who both have Nigerian heritage.

The nation are looking to snap up youngsters in the English setup and convince them to switch to Nigeria to boost their international hopes.

Having already convinced Victor Moses and Alex Iwobi over the years, Nigeria officials are set to win the battle to sign Tammy Abraham after talks.

The player has a very bright future in the game and is currently on loan at Swansea to gain some Premier League experience.

Now, following Abraham’s switch, Ademola Lookman and Dominic Solanke are next on the list in what could be a huge coup.

Lookman is looking impressive for Everton at the moment despite his lack of full games but is a very promising talent nonetheless.

The forward scored a brilliant goal against Tottenham U23’s in the youth sides and was given a chance off the bench against Sunderland on Wednesday.

Dominic Solanke is also in a similar position to Lookman following his move from Chelsea to Anfield.

The Liverpool man impressed in pre-season and has played some games for Liverpool but not as many as he would have liked.

Regardless, Nigerian officials will have pulled off a huge coup if they are able to convince the two players to switch allegiances from England to Nigeria.

England lose Abraham

One of the biggest talking points has no doubt been the Abraham snub for England and will lose out on one of their best prospects.
